Touré decries some on the right’s ‘racial scorecard’ on Trayvon, Chris Lane ("Trayvon an innovator")

In his “rant” on Monday, “The Cycle” co-host Toure took on the right wing’s obsession with keeping a “racial scorecard” since the Trayvon Martin trial, most recently around the heinous murder of Australian baseball player Chris Lane.

“In the post-Trayvon days,” he said, “the right has a vile new tactic, which is to thrust his name and that of Delbert Belton into the media as a way to make some point about race in America,” something he says “even some of Fox News’ most familiar faces concede is silly.”

So you have to be a homosexual to get a news show these days? And maybe they went after Traydmark in court because he was trying to murder Mr. Zimmerman, something Australian athlete Chris Lane and World War II hero Delbert Belton apparently weren't doing to their killers.

I like scorecards. But how about the scorecard for the number of handful of viewers who actually watch this “security camera on a mental asylum” called MSNBC?

The trick will be to find people who are willing to watch...

Why not? Al Sharpton and his ilk expect whites to atone for what happened 150 years ago.

We are all George Zimmerman.

We have to be so long as the DNC wages a race war.

The ignorant watch and work at NBC.

To the staff at NBC : Niel Young's an astronaut and Gov George Wallace a Republican.

In a few years NBC will report Lincoln was a democrat.

Innovation these days is mixing candy and ice-tea into a drug and using a screw driver to break into homes.

Poor widdle babies. It’s just not FAIR to report black-on-white murders!

Drank drinkers are not innovators. Anything but. They are incapable of thinking.

This from a guy who also keeps a racial scorecard. The hypocrisy of these leftist hacks knows no bounds.

“We are all George Zimmerman. We have to be so long as the DNC wages a race war.”

I remind my children of this at every opportunity; our local news presents many opportunities (living next to Newark NJ).

........”Trayvon an innovator”?

Trayvon was no “inovator”, he was a wannabe tough guy who is now a dead street thug.

“Poor widdle babies. It’s just not FAIR to report black-on-white murders!”

That’s right; they’d rather pursue the media/Hollywood agenda currently being pushed, in which all blacks are hard-working, educated, contributing citizens showing whites the errors of their ways...

“Trayvon was no “inovator”, he was a wannabe tough guy who is now a dead street thug.”

You’re right; he wasn’t a “sympathetic victim”. I’d imagine those forced to live and attend school nearest him are breathing easier now...

To this POS, a “racial scorecard” means even MENTIONING all of the black on white crime occurring. Like the 99 yo woman murdered in NY, or the 97 yo woman raped in IN, both by blacks.

Yeah, I think we need a scorecard to keep up with this crap.....maybe a whole bunch of them.

Touré called such tactics by right wing media a “gross attempt to put Chris Lane on some national scorecard beside Trayvon and Jordan Davis and Oscar Grant, as if they’re all the same, and as if this is some ‘gotcha’ game and as if I and Rev. Sharpton must publicly atone each time a black person kills a white person.”

"As if they're all the same", he's right, they're not.

No_Limit_Nigga, was the perp, not the victim, but Chris Lane and Shorty were innocent victims.

Street thugs with no parental supervision, with gangsta rappers as role models, with dank and lean as their drink of choice, used to stay in the hood and kill blacks, but have now come out of the hood in critical mass.

I even carry when I walk the dog in my own neighborhood, where we have several black working families and no gangstas.

The families have both a known mother and known father and both parents live together... you know, a real family structure.

I see their kids, clean and polite, getting on the school bus every day and the boys have belts that keep their pants up around their waist.

This is a middle class neighborhood, doctors, contractors, sales folks, even a couple of skanky lawyers, and we have never had much trouble and never any racial trouble.

My decision to carry when I'm walking the dog is simple, the gun ain't that heavy, and I'd hate myself for being accosted while unarmed.
